living presidents. of the three, it seems to me that jimmy carter found his role and function, leaving aside the fact that he was the one that understood the irony of being in washington where the residents don't have the same rights as the people. what struck to me was that he spoke to us as a southerner who had seen the changes from his region and spoke from the heart. the president, on the other hand, i must say disappointed me because it seemed to me the moment called for him to be presidential. we were bringing truth to power. we were speaking to the three most powerful men or three of the most powerful men in our country. one of them was president of the united states. he gave a magnificent speech. but i would have preferred to have him say this time you have got a president in the white house. i hear you. i accept the challenge that you have given to me. now help me to get the congress to accept the challenge. he wouldn't have had to say what the challenge was. but it would have been the presidential thing to do. instead, he echoed frankly some of the rhetoric, terrific rhetoric
